Fresh back from the chilly and WINDY confines of Mount Pinos from this past weekend I have a video of two famous globulars in Hercules taken thru a Gen 3 image intensifier coupled to my Mewlon 250 (at f12). Please pardon the marginal audio quality due to wind noise - I didn't think to use the 'wind cut' feature on my camera - live and learn.

I suggest using an HD setting for the crispest video.

Here's a still of M13 (exposure time ~1 sec) to get you started:

Those are great! Someday, I'll have to get a look through a IIE. (But for now, your videos will have to do.) Thanks! :applause:

Oh, and I loved when you slewed from M13 to M92: what a ride!

Great goto demo! I was amazed at how little shake you had with all that wind-great mount you have there.

Great!
When I watch the video I almost feel like the photons from the cluster are raining down on me.
